I have recently purchased TWO of these amps to put into my rack to run part of my outdoor rig.One amp was used to power 4 SP3 Peavey speakers as subs. The other was used to power 4 Peavey 115 internationals full range. Both sets of cabinets are loaded with black widows. I run nothing but peavey gear and these blew me away.I sold my cs 800's because they were getting a little age and I went to some fly weight 800 watt amps for my dj rig. (which by the was is also a set of peaveys with BW's) The time came when I needed a lot of power for a gig that I found out about last minute. Bought these amps HOPING that they would last one gig to get me out of a tight. To my surprise, they thundered all 8 cabinets!!!!! I have since used them in outside venues on 4 different occassions and have had no issues other than they are HEAVY.The weight is comparable to what my old cs 800's were. For the money you can't beat the performance and what really floored me was that the power ratings are RMS and not peak. I would recommend these to anyone especially someone on a budget. I have been in mobile sound reinforcement for 12 years and am still blown away by the performance and the price! Nady amplifiers ROCK!

I just read all the reviews on this product and am kinda weirded out. When I first read the reviews on it about two years ago (when I had used it) they were all negative, giving the same problem that I'll elaborate on in a second. I didn't see any of those reviews anymore. I also noticed that a bunch of the reviews were written with the same format, talking about the expensive (EV, JBL, Peavy, and Yamaha) speakers that they were using the amp with, and then saying how well it worked. What kind of place/person has those speakers, but doesn't already have a power amp/doesn't have enough money to afford a better one? I think it's possible that someone was writing fake reviews, but who knows really.This amp is definately a great bang for the buck. It's significantly cheaper than the Behringer PA's, and we all know that most of Behringer's products are marginally less expensive than more trusted names. So is Nady, producing an almost equal PA for less, trustworthy? My friend bought this amp to use for the band he did sound for and it failed. Right after he got it, we used it for a musical at my highschool and it performed well enough for that, though we were only using it for our monitors. It blew up after the musical durring one of their "band" "practices". I wasn't there so it's possible that they were misusing it, but the guy swore that he wasn't overdriving it. If I remember correctly, it was the B channel that blew first. Whichever it was, the old reviews had said the same thing. It's rated power I believe is the RMS rating, not peak (like the behringer PA's, I say that bitterly). So that's definately a plus. If you take REALLY good care of it, I think it will last but you might look into one of those warranties. I'm actually considering having my school buy one right now, but I'm gonna make sure it's got at least a year warranty first.

First instinct is to say WOW what a good price for an amp with a max output of 900 watts. Until you get it, realize that it doesn't fit into standard box racks because it is about an inch too long (back cover will not fit on without some amp casing "modifications" i.e. jig saw). Also the LED's for signal indication remain faintly lit after use, even when the power if off and the unit is unplugged! It seems to be some sort of capacitor discharge thing that lasts for about 15 minutes. Still, pretty weird. Also do not attempt to contact Nady about anything, as far as technical assistance goes they are a big ZERO. I have sent an iquiry to them via email 5 times over the course of 2 months. Then I tried to fax it. No responses. That really ticks me off. They seem to be unplugged from the world.
I used to work as a roadie and have seen many things go bad as the sound technician was lost in his thought about controling a certain amount of power.So, I bought one in "01" and still have it.use it for rehearsal and at local venues (300 to 1000 people).You need to learn how to harness its power to your advantage and make it work for you.After 7 years, it still works great!You've got to know how to work things out with powerIf you don't know how to use the power this baby has, then you'll be out of luck when the tough gets going.RADARLOVE
Ok, first of all, I am into some quite heavy musica and I like to have my speakers jumping, everyone knows that well powered speakers sound much better than ones with little power. I bought two of these, the first one broke, one side of the amp was broken and that wasnt broken enough for nady and there was no warranty. The second one works kind of... I have it bridged, so supposedly it is pumping '900 watts' into two PV215s and you think that should be enough right? Wrong, the 900 watts is a severe exaggeration I am afraid to say. In fact, my Behringer v-tone 212 puts out 120 watts (60 per side) and powers my peaveys far far better than this 900 watt bohemoth ever did... Its just not worth the money, save up your money and buy somehting else...
This power amp is only average. It clips easily at low frequencies. I have never been able to turn it up because it clips. The lack of 1/4 inch outputs or speakon outputs is also not good. It is an ok beginner amp, but for the same price you probably couldn't get much else that is better.
i have taken this amp on the road for 4 years. indoors/outdoors. i have put it thru the ringer. it still delivers load crisp toans week after week
I have used this amp 3 times a week for 3 hours a session for 2 years without a single problem.
This amp is very heavy, which isn't a bad thing. Figuring in, though, that It's also slightly bigger than 2 rack spaces and also significantly deeper than the other amp in my rack, it causes some logistical problems for me, but nothing that can't be worked around. With that said, if you need power for monitors or need a second or third amp in a chain, this amp is a great value.
I have owned this amp for a little over a year and it worked great, until it quit working on me about a month ago. I was Very Disapointed in it BIG TIME! Nady is not a good brand.... Do not buy this if you plan on it working for you. I would not get this amp again.... If getting a amp, dont buy this one... Will Not Buy Again!!!
So far this amp has really worked well for our group. We have not had to turn it up all the way yet. We just haven't had to. But I know it has a lot left for us when we need it.
I bought one of these about six months ago so that I could leave it at a club I work at every Friday night and not have to bring in my big rack. It has worked very well since then. It gets moved each night to a back room and has been dropped once by someone "helping" us move equipment. It still works fine. I am running a pair of 12" speakers on one side and a 15" cab for bottom on the other side. It works great. A nice investment for a small price.
Bottom line: Excellent product. I have four of these. Used them at an outdoor gig on a ninety degree day. At the end of the day they were still cool to the touch. I was out there for ten hours, blasting non-stop. Get this amp and treat it right.
I bought this amp to drive my monitors. It is built well and it sounds just as good as much more expensive power amps. The only down side is that it is physically very large and I had to move the rails forward in my rack to get the front cover on. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.
Used this amp to power two 15 inch peavey PR15s, lots of clean volume no problem. The quiet on and off works great, the dual fans are quiet and work great, this little guy was cranked up and didn't get warm at all. I'm very satisfied with this, If i find another on sale or blem, I'll definately get it.
I bought this amp about 2 years ago. It has blown two peavey PA's and burned up two high power crossovers (4 seperate occasions). Everything is connected properly and this amp is being used within it's specs. I won't use it anymore. I don't have any problems when I use my Peavey amps with the same set up.
I just purchased this amp and used it for the first time in a National Guard Armory with just two Speakers and this amp. . . Awesome!!. . . it was hooked to 2 CMG 12" 200 watt 8 ohm speakers, Sounded NICE!!! I pushed them with no problem at all. . . Very Nice Amp. May look cheap but peforms like it cost a fortune. Good Job Nady!
i have had this amp for about 3 years now and it has been a workhorse. i have palyed it through 2 15inch pa speakers and it ran perfect. no problems with the amp at all. nady is a great product for those of us on a budget, thanks nady.
Well I've had the XA-900 for about a year, and as long as you don't run it in to clipping it's OK, not great but it'll work. Also I'm pretty sure that they publish the power ratings for the peak power and not continuous, so don't expect that much power, but it's cheap so as long as you baby it it should work.
I am a mobile DJ and use this amps exclusively for my subs in bridged mode. Setup correctly and adjusted appropriately I think it is one of the best bang for your buck amps on the market. Unfortunately, for me anyway, it is a little noisy when used for mains but for a low freq driver that is intolerant to noise it has been the best.
Well, after getting messed around on one purchase and having to cancel the order, i bought the xa-900. I hooked everything up(in the proper manner) and low and behold the right channel was MUCH weaker than the left.There was a very noticable diffence to where I had to put the right channel volume knob 1/4 more to balance out the difference(stereo) I have all new cab's and cables as well. If there is someone out there with the same problem, please post...would really like to hear about it. But all in all the good channel sounds nice. Woooo Hoooo
I use this amp as main amp in a community theatre. Was sceptical about it at first but I am impressed with the amount of power it has and ease of hookup and operation.
